Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Cream

More than three weeks into a generous sample of this Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Ice Cream now. I moved onto this after finishing the sample of IsQueen Rice High Performance Eye Gel at long last ="= I've never heard of the brand Skyn Iceland before but am happy to know it's available online in the case I like it and want to pursue further.

This is a light eye cream with a very interesting texture akin to congealed milk - think Asian style milk pudding. It's thicker than American jello, but it jiggles and it does not adapt to the shape of its container.  The picture below is taken two weeks after I had started using. As you can see, the cream looks as though I had just squeezed it out of its package! When I touch it, some melt onto the tip of my ring finger while the shape does not budge. Neat huh?

I think this eye cream is very nice. It is unscented, light, but effective. It absorbs quickly, and although it doesn't do a total disappearing act by no means it is greasy or oily either. It does a good job softening my eye area, leaving my skin supple and sunscreen-ready. Most importantly, it does not melt my sunscreen or disturb my eye makeup, a major requirement for any daytime eye cream for me. For this reason, I save it for use only in the morning as I have plenty others I can use at night (currently another sample tube of Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminee Eye and Lip Cream).

Will I buy the full size? Yes, but only with a promotion ^.^ I have so many samples, trial, as well as other full size products to get to it just doesn't make sense for me to go buy another full size a retail.

Hi there anonymous!

Thank you very much for reading and leaving a comment.

I hope you will enjoy Japan for all it has to offer. I miss it very much, especially with all the lovely skincare/cosmetic goodies are no longer within reach T.T

Ahh, the good times.
